The Louisville SWAT team is planning to train at the silos before they're demolished.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Louisville SWAT team is planning to train at the silos before they're demolished.
The team is set to begin training at 9 a.m. Monday at the property on Floyd Street. The property was purchased in January by the University of Louisville Foundation.
It includes 22 concrete silos as well as several buildings which were used to process soybeans into products including ink.
U of L and the foundation are seeking funding to demolish the silos and buildings but offered to let police use the property for training in the meantime.
